The library is open before and after school for students to read, checkout books, work on research projects, take AR tests, and work on homework.

Classes visit the library throughout the day for storytimes and to do research projects.  Individual students may come into the library at scheduled times during the day to checkout books and take AR tests.


Meet your librarian, Mrs. Arp!

This is my seventh year at Raba.  I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Reading, and completed my MS in Library & Information Science at the University of North Texas.  I previously taught second and fourth grade, and am thrilled for the opportunity to work with students of all ages in the library!  I have a passion for reading and writing, and I am excited to share that passion with my students.  I look forward to getting to know you!
